Personalized Robe

Personalized robe photos and "getting ready" shots have become a popular request in addition to more formal wedding portraits, but if you’re getting married in the summer, don’t order thick robes for your crew. You’ll all be a sweaty mess. Silk and satin robes breathe much better than cotton waffle robes. We love these lightweight "mother of the bride" and "mother of the groom" robes from online maker Our Love Story Co.

Mother-of-Pearl Frame

Framed photographs are always a thoughtful gift. We love these elegant (and pun-tastic) mother-of-pearl frames from Pottery Barn. You could include a photograph of you and mom when you were a kid or wait until after the wedding and frame your favorite portrait of her from the big day.

Pressed Flower Bracelet

Pink carnations are said to represent a mother’s love so any gift with this motif is a thoughtful choice. We love these dainty, pink pressed floral bracelets from online maker Chikarins House. The flower used is actually a Sweet Alyssum but looks just like a teeny, tiny carnation.
